Subject: Wow!
Brilliant overview with primitive but pragmatic animation that makes sense of a complex topic.

Subject: Beautiful, wonderful, and amazing in its simplicity.
I like the concept/image of the earth exploding without gravity. Seems like the end is missing though. The last frame reads: Even the sun has spots... and then it ends. Yeah... Well, what about them? Kind of just leaves you hanging.

Subject: To the moon...
A somewhat interesting of the earth, the stars, gravity etc. Film is somehwat tries to lighten things up with some interesting special effects (the earth exploding was interesting) but ultimately gets bogged down by lunar talk.


All about gravity, planets and the solar system. Great shot of sudden loss of gravity: man's hat and cane suddenly fly off his head, then he's lifted off the ground clutching tree branches; we next see the earth exploding!!
